Who are the IT Stephaines and who is IT Interview proxie/job support drug addict ?
Greetings! To the real IT Professionals. [Hope you are not using IT stephanie].
Read to this real IT industry pollution story!! to be aware of.
You also share to your managers if they are blind in recruiting the real professionals or if they are not able to audit the IT Consultants work. Otherwise, there is a chance you will loose your job.
As you might be aware because of Cloud technology is getting implemented we may not require the current size of the IT employees. So many IT cos or organizations have their plans to serve pink slips globally to reduce the cost.
I am writing this message for self motivated guys to read this carefully to grow in IT Industry in right path for a strategic career plan and also to protect themselves from the IT Stephanies.
Have you heard of Scooter Stephanie ?
Similarly, I found there are many IT stephanies [proxie] running the IT show for many IT services clients globally since many years. You might know by now.
There are 100s of whatsapp groups are running with this business across globe to offer proxie interview and job support services. 1000s of guys are doing this job. Just join in these groups to understand their activities,
In few minutes of reading this blog you will come to know how these man eaters spoiling the real future of IT professionals in the market by making the freshers like Drug addict to the IT Stephanies.
There are 2 ways the wrong ways can happen in IT a) A non-IT person is keen in converting his profile into IT by faking completely into IT profile, there are many companies does this activity. b) A College fresher want to come to an IT Job with Nichie skill.
I would like to consider one scenario among the above, which is (b).
If you are a fresher or OPT/CPT in different countries, read this storey.
Who are your IT Stephanies ?:
How to catch the market or scale yourself in IT Cloud needs, in reality you need to learn it. If you have a right mentor/coacher you don’t need to depend on proxies and job support. With these scooter stephanies; you will be handicapped one day and your name is going to be banned from the IT Industry itself.
Are you aware your fake resume will be blocked by top companies how in India ?
There are norms fixed by NASSCOM India to be reported by the IT Cos on the fake profiles.
I have been watching this activity in many cos since early 2000. So once your great name is blacklisted, large cos don’t touch your profile as it was named as fake by your employer. But these are framed as very high confidential activities and no HR reveals you.
Who is killing your Career ?
So obviously, you are killing your career yourself when you come to Job market.
Who are the benefitors by ruining your career ?
The so called chasers for you “Body shoppers or IT consulting cos in different countries” and the proxies and job supporters!!
If you are lazy guy and do not have brain to catch, “Yes” you can play around with IT Industry for sometime in this way as long as there can be blind Client managers operate the IT show.
Do you know how much these group of Spehanies earn on your name with what efforts ?
Let us do some maths with assumptions.
Let us assume the Stephanies IT co, is fixed with client USD$60/hr for your services.
If you are a OPT/CPT/Fresher the IT Cos spend monthly around USD$1,000 for 3-4 months with your accommodation, training and interviews cost. Please note by taking you into monthly stipend mode, they made your brain addicted for stephanie services. So now you became a stephanies drug addict.
They make themselves talking to the client and fixing interviews. And during the telephonic interviews they made you to sit like a brain dead patient infront of the web camera one side and the other side to your laptop the Stephanie is going to talk to the client. You will play like a movies actor the lip movements!
Once the Stephanie excellently convinced the client with his 1000s of interviews handled in this way, the blind client has been cheated exceptionally! And you will get the contract with USD$60/hr.
Now, You IT Co will tell you to play infront of the client like a movies actor with the direction of Job Support Stephanie. So as long as you have stamina to act in this drug addicted mood you will be successful. But when client come to know your profile will be short listed into the black listed profiles. Depends on the country policies you resume will be highlighted into different national databases.So, you are blocked in the hit list by not recruiting you as IT Professionals.
Now, let us calculate how much each of thee Stephanies got the money: Assume you worked for 3 months with these guys help/support the IT co earned weekly with 40 hrs billing [USD$60/hr] as USD$2,400. So per month, it is; USD$ 9,600. They pay to Job support Stephanie [either direct or through co.]: USD1,000. You will get USD$2,000/month for 6 months. After 6 months the IT Co will go and re-negotiate the rate to USD$100. Then might give 5-7% hike for you or fix an yearly pay with a long term contract.
So, your fate is like IT Drug addicted guy. As long as the dumb client doesn’t catch you they will make you to act as actor infront of them. And the director will make this film as long as you don’t fail in it.
How easily you can learn now a days, instead of paying to Stephanies before coming out from a college to plan or save your IT Career ?

Please be aware; the Non-IT guy will have structured plan through their company by becoming subject expert than the really IT professionals. Their company can buy the HR/technical interviewers in a large corporate setup to push this guys into the payroll once they are SME. If you talk with him/her you will be shocked on the SME levels what they have. So no interviewer can find this profile is fake unless these guys reveal themselves in a coffee shop, etc. for their friends. So this is the global IT Drama one can learn to be aware of how the real IT guys are getting cheated by different ways!!
In my career, I have seen both of the above scenarios. But I used to screen them well and reject them by blasting the recruitment guys, when I was recruiting.
These are the samples only I have explained. There are many ways you are getting cheated, you need to be aware.
Note to Stephanies —->
I am trying to motivate the real hard working and ethical IT Professionals through this blog. But as long as your blind client managers are able to listen to you, you do not have a problem or running your business by catching the drug addicts or lazy guys in the global market. But my real IT professionals also need to be aware of these cheating activities what you do in the industry, to safeguard themselves. They are loosing their jobs because of you guys polluted the industry globally.
The Industry needs them longer way to run the right or ethical shows not like you!! by polluting the IT environment.
If somebody is polluting the environment in each country they have laws to punish them. But what kind of punishment you should get for doing this cheating business in IT ?
Don’t you feel ashamed ?
Finally, with this High Tech cheating amount what are you going to get ? Is your family and kids will have right time in their life in a spiritual way speaking ?
You are more than a scammed political leader right?, in any country.
Note; As long as you and the blind client managers tie-up to pollute the IT work environment; the real IT professionals need to safeguard their jobs by escalating to top management. Till that time good luck for you!
